Al Arabiya TRT The @Russia account is labeled, but not the @Ukraine one. However, it does include a bunch of Chinese media outlets:... Read More
Big Habbening on Twitter. Large-scale Bitcoin scam affecting high profile Blue Checkmark accounts, from Obama to Elon Mask. Hacker made off with something like $10 million. Even some minor circumstantial evidence that legendary Nazi troll hacker weev was behind it. All the Blue Checkmarks have been silenced until @jack figures out what is going on.... Read More
It will be the centenary of the October Revolution in a couple of days - the original color revolution that finished off a great and rapidly modernizing empire and handed power to a gang of Russia-hating criminals. To mark the occasion, the next two weeks I will be documenting the dismal failure of sovok across... Read More
The Swedish Institute has acknowledged me as a far right extremist "dedicated to hate against migrants, women, LGBTQ people, and human rights organizations." I am in the company of 14,392 other Swedish and "international" accounts that have a "high extremism and/or Neo-Nazi orientation" and threaten violence. The Swedish Institute is most famous for running the... Read More
I'll have a more serious post on this soon enough, but for now, reactions from some of the more important and interesting players. Although they are present, the "anti-globalist" crowd - Steve Bannon and his allies, Stephen Miller and Michael Anton - are relegated to the back, while the likes of Jared Kushner occupy a...

Riding on the apathy of the masses, crony Communists rig the elections in a small, corrupt post-Soviet backwater to retain their iron grip on power. But their dastardly plans to crush democracy and draw benighted Moldova back into the Eurasian darkness are foiled by the heroic students of Chisinau. Inspired by their boudiccan (and photogenic)...

I am a blogger, thinker, and businessman in the SF Bay Area. I’m originally from Russia, spent many years in Britain, and studied at U.C. Berkeley.
One of my tenets is that ideologies tend to suck. As such, I hesitate about attaching labels to myself. That said, if it’s really necessary, I suppose “liberal-conservative neoreactionary” would be close enough.
Though I consider myself part of the Orthodox Church, my philosophy and spiritual views are more influenced by digital physics, Gnosticism, and Russian cosmism than anything specifically Judeo-Christian.
